Family, Friends, Love, Betrayal... Farewell to 1999.
I enjoy creating complex and compelling cinema through the structure of storytelling. With this art form, I strive to challenge my audience’s perspective by taking them back to 1999, in a time of uncertainty and unease. This process pushes me to fully explore cinematic form, research the era of the millennium, and experiment with cinematic techniques that will unleash my crew’s creative abilities.
Lilith explores the daily life of several characters as they prepare for a feast among friends on New Year’s Eve. This short will examine how behavior is altered when friends and family gather in celebration and drunkenness. Few films have been set in New Year’s Eve 1999, and/or have explored the way people interact with others as temptation lurks among them. The story is propelled by a character-driven plot composed of intertwining events that play out into something unexpected, mysterious and supernatural. Lilith will provide viewers an intimate experience with the lifestyles of these characters as they journey through the last day of 1999, as they welcome a new life in 2000.
Lilith needs all the support we can receive to accomplish our goal. Whether you prefer to sponsor $5 or $300, we hope you will support our project and help spread the word about our film project.
WHY INVEST IN OUR FILM?
Funding will support local emerging filmmakers who are enrolled in film related high school and/or college programs. There will be internship and job-shadowing opportunities for students. Also, we are working closely with schools on assuring interested students will be given the opportunity to experience a film production setting, providing them with the knowledge and hands-on experience that is required in the film industry.
WHAT WE INTEND TO RAISE?
Donations will be used to continue film production and support the post-production phase of our project, including feeding the crew, renting equipment, and marketing.
YOUR DONATION WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!
